Infectious Diseases Modelling Group

The Infectious Diseases Modelling Group focuses on developing statistical methods to estimate relevant parameters within complex ecological setting by integrating various sources of information in order to better understand the dynamics of diseases’ transmission and mitigate their public health risk.

Current work concentrates on 2 themes:

  • Endemic diseases and, in particular, Neglected tropical diseases, with a focus on Chagas disease and rabies.
  • Emerging diseases, with a focus on rapid response to outbreaks and real-time analysis for MERS-CoV, Ebola, and arboviruses.
